There is no Alt-Right

It is the old white supremacy movement - neo-Nazis and KKK morons.

5. Does this belief help you sleep at night?

 

You mean to tell me that being the Klan kept millions of Democratic voters from going to the polls?

You mean to tell me that being Nazis brought out more Republicans than voted against an ACTUAL black man?

You mean to tell me that racism, misogyny, and xenophobia actually motivated 62 million Americans to go out in vote in states that have been under Democratic control for decades?

If you really think those things are the reason Drumpf got elected, then I hope that helps you cope with our loss.

9. It was a visceral reaction

It's not something that "just happened" with this election. It was building for the last 8 years as the "ultimate insult" (a black President) has served in the highest office... and even with all the bravado threats, he was re-elected.

Aside from what are probably unprecedented election irregularities, IMHO, a group said "enough is enough" and brought previous non-voters out from the woods, farms, and small towns. JUST LIKE many on "our side" said "enough is enough", bringing out black folk who never voted before and were willing to stand in line for 8 - 10 hours in the heat to help elevate a Barack Obama. Many of those folks went back to sleep again.

I hate to say but it is human nature.

The GOP likes using the term "political correctness" and Democrats (of late) call it "identity politics". But what neither side is willing to admit, is that they (some whites) consider their cultures and world-views as "universal" and "the norm", and thus anyone who disturbs this self-defined/self-imposed "natural order" is worthy of being marginalized with nonsensical terms such as "engaging in PC" or "identity politics".

6. They have made RW fascism "benign"

by using such a name without associating it with what they really are.

7. White NATIONALIST supremacists. Best not forget just

which groups are expected to make up most of the cannon fodder as needed to protect planetary white Christian supremacy.

Family for two of our grandsons is affluent enough to avoid most coercion, but another might be in danger, too early to tell, though he could claim Danish citizenship through his mother. In spite of the POTENTIAL benefit to some people of joining the military, I'd like to see minorities say a big no to the outsize service they've been providing their nation that way. Let the government fill the billets with the children and grandchildren of the white nationalists in proper numbers.

10. Absolutely correct and fascism takes in a large part of the Republican Party.

The only real difference between those who describe themselves as alt-right and old fashioned fascist is the scapegoats change the methods stay the same.

12. And lets not forget how the MSM has been saying Alt- Right

what the hell does Alt mean alternative to right, close but no cigar to right, try again it's 11/22/1963 (53 years ago) and some right winger didn't mean to kill a sitting president, some racist jerk murdered a minister in Tennessee on 4/4/1968 (48 years ago).

These two assassinations were told like it was back in those days, it wasn't some guy in the morning trying to pass off a coffee vendor

So now that the MSM has and is trying to "NORMALIZE" the words "alt-right", they can go F themselves. He and his bunch (dumpster) are white nationalist or white nationalism, in my book there racist, bigots, and if they can't say the words these people are racist, then maybe they should get out of the business, this sugar coating just so that you can get people on your "show" and that's all it is now is a "show" to "normalize" for the commercial value.

They are RACISTS, BIGOTS, now MSM start calling like it is........................and when you do bring these racist , bigots on your "show" to "normalize" all you have to do is ask two questions, are you a racists, and when they say no, then you ask, really, here let me play you a clip.........................and then look at the racists bigot and say in my opinion that's pretty racists, now are you a racists?

13. And neo-Nazis and the KKK are now

the mainstream of the Republican party.

Let's not pretend otherwise, those attitudes and beliefs have been there for a long time, now they simply are able to be fully open with them.

They've been given permission to openly be who they really are instead of hiding behind a pretense of being decent humans.
